Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

October 12 - Morning

"The Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said,

'It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of
the word of God in order to wait on tables.
and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We
will turn this responsibility over to them
 and will give
our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.'

So the word of God spread. The number of disciples
in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number
of priests became obedient to the faith."

- Acts 6:2-4, 7

Serving Bread and Serving the Word of God    

The apostle’s ministry to people was prayer and the teaching of the word of God. When the
demands of serving the people began to be neglected or began to require more of the apostle’s
time and energy than was available it is important to understand how the apostles resolved this tension. They did not stop teaching the people the word of God in order to meet the people’s
needs, but neither did they neglect the people’s needs. Instead, the apostle’s clearly considered prayer, teaching and taking care of people as important. To resolve the need the apostles did
not take all the responsibility on themselves, but distinguished between what they were going
to do and what other people in the church could do.

The apostles where not willing to take time away from prayer and teaching just so that they
could serve meals to people who were in need of food. Yet, the serving of the food was very
important and the issue of negligence was addressed. The correction the apostles made was
the addition of more people being involved in the ministry of the church instead of themselves
investing more time, which of course, was not available.
They said:

“It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait
on tables.” – Acts 2:2

Just because people have physical needs, does not mean the ministers of the Word of God
need to stop teaching. The Word of God is the transforming, renewing power in the soul of the
church. Obviously the physical needs of people can also be met by the church without having to neglect Bible teaching. The apostles figured out a way of doing both by having more and more
people serve. These additional servants were also empowered by the Spirit of God. What was
the result of this balanced approach?

“So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly.”
– Acts 6:7

Something to Ponder??
For three straight years Bach composed a new cantata for every Sunday service! This involved composing, writing
out and copying the music
for the singers and players, rehearsing and then
performing in church.

Chalom (Hb) - Dream (Eng) - the Hebrew noun chalom is translated "dreams."
It comes from the Hebrew verb chalam which means "to dream."

  The modern media and liberal skeptics like to promote the writings of the Gnostics (Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Judas, etc.) which date from the second century at best. But, skeptics continue to neglect the fact that the letters and books collected in the New Testament are clearly provable first century documents.

Hebrew inscription in Herodian ashlar stone under Robinson's Arch
Hebrew inscription in a Herodian ashlar under Robinson's Arch on the west wall near the southwest corner of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The inscription may have been engraved around 900 AD to commemorate the Jewish graves found in the rubble under the arch from that same time period. 
The inscription comes from Isaiah 66:14. This inscription was discovered by Benjamin Mazar during his excavations that began after the Six-Day war
in 1967. The inscription reads:

You shall see and your heart shall rejoice. Their bones shall flourish like grass.

It appears to be a paraphrase of Isaiah 66:14:

When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass.

Mazar believes this inscription was placed here on the west wall of the Temple Mount by the Jews who were allowed back into the city to rebuild the Temple
in Emperor Julian’s day in 363. Others recognize that about four feet below the inscription 30-40 burials had taken place around 900 AD.
